It sounds like the singer’s legal battle against her alleged abuser Dr. Luke has encountered some setbacks. We have learned that the court of appeals has rejected Kesha’s counterclaims.
What this means is that the jury will not be deciding if she can extradite herself from the contracts with Dr. Luke.
The decision taken today, May 29 states that: ‘Kesha’s proposed amendments are insufficient and devoid of merit. Her counterclaim seeking relief terminating the agreements on the ground of impossibility and impracticability of performance was only speculative, contradicted by her allegations that she continued performing under the agreements and, as to at least one of them, the impossibility was not produced by an unanticipated event that couldn’t have been foreseen or guarded against.’
The first outlet to report the news was The Hollywood Reporter.
As you probably already know, Kesha sued the music producer back in 2014, accusing him of battery and sexual assault.
In order to break all ties with her alleged abuser, she sought to invalidate the recording contracts she had signed with him.
Dr. Luke proceeded to countersue the singer, accusing her of defamation.
Kesha dropped her claims in 2016, but his suit went on.
The singer has tried in many ways since then to terminate their contracts together.
Although the legal war continues today, Kesha has managed to have a relatively successful music comeback.
In addition to releasing her third studio album, titled Rainbow, she also performed at this year’s BBMAs and Grammys.
Oh, and her album debuted at number on the charts!
Finally, she also teased her The Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore tour on social media earlier this month.
‘Just get ready for our tour, animals,’ she posted on Instagram.
